Winemaker’s Tasting Notes
This wine shows aromas of blackberry, black cherries, and a hint of strawberry. All of the fruit characters are balanced by toasty oaky aromas. A dark red/violet hue is complimented by flavors of blackberries, dusty coco, and sweet vanilla oak. The wine has a medium balanced structure with resolved tannins and a soft finish.

GYPSY SOUL BIO
Gypsy Soul entertains, elevates and inspires passion by creating memorable musical experiences of deep connection.
A cross between Bonnie Raitt, Joan Osborne and Ray LaMontagne, Gypsy Soul’s sound ranges from Americana Soul to Acoustic Rock and Blues. Anchored by singer/lyricist Cilette Swann’s earthy and passionate three and a half octave vocals and composer/arranger Roman Morykit’s multi-instrumental virtuosity, Gypsy Soul excellence and depth leaves their audiences spellbound. They’ve sold out numerous theaters including Triple Door and Musical Instrument Museum.
Thirteen albums and half a million miles later, Gypsy Soul has forged an independent music career that has taken them all over the world, building up a loyal audience who’ve enabled them to sell 1.6 million downloads internationally and 140,000 CDs in the U.S. alone. You may have already heard their music on TV shows and movies such as Providence, Felicity, 90210, Roswell and After Sex that have aired globally. They’ve also received “Critic’s Choice” in over 60 publications nationally. Managing to raise $52,000 from two recent fan funding campaigns to help record and promote True, they’re are set to release it internationally on March 18, 2016.
Gypsy Soul have had a Top 40 hit at Adult Contemporary radio with “Silent Tears,” and scored in the Top 5 on many other radio charts. In their 15 year professional recording and touring career, they’ve won numerous independent music awards along the way, including the Independent Music Awards, International Acoustic Music Awards, Just Plain Folks and honors at Lilith Fair. All of this has been accomplished on their own with the loyal support of their many fans but without label, management, booking, PR or radio campaigns. They are the truest definition of an Indie Band – all heart and pure blood, sweat and tears.

RoxyAnn Vintage Wine Alert
Whenever I shop, I always visit the wine section. This past week I rented a movie from Ray’s Market in Phoenix. On the shelf in The Southern Oregon Wine Section I discovered a nice selection of 2011 Claret and 2012 Honor Barn Red. Currently, we are pouring 2012 Claret and 2013 Honor Barn Red in the Tasting Room.
On your way to the Applegate, stop by the Ruch Country Store. In their wine section there is a small selection of 2009 Cabernet Franc, 2009 Syrah, 2009 Sky Hill Red, 2011 Viognier and 2012 Honor Barn Red.
If you “miss” the previous vintages stop by Ray’s in Phoenix or the Ruch Country Store and visit the wine section.
Rosé…Not Just a Summer Wine
Rosé’s dramatic rise in popularity has led to the wine’s description as “summer water.” It’s refreshing, young, and meant to be drunk soon after the grapes it came from were picked from the vine. Preferably, you’ll drink it while sitting in a porch chair watching a magnificent sunset. With all those romantic connotations you may’ve gone a little rosé crazy this summer, and you may even have a few bottles left over. But is it still OK to drink those leftover bottles in the depth of the winter season, or even over Memorial Day weekend next spring?
Stop by the Tasting Room to sample our 2014 Rosé.
